I think it would contribute more to the city being downtown--- however seeing as it's Ripley's and this is Orlando, it may just go on I-Drive. Though, that would place it *very* close to SeaWorld Orlando. It's hard to say where they might put it--- as the other two are in Gatlinburg and Myrtle Beach. Both tourist areas.

I agree with it being placed near the Science Center or visible from off I-4 near/in downtown.

Disney Road Paves Way to Skip I-4, Enter Park

Walt Disney World is quietly building a new road onto its property that could siphon thousands of tourists a day off Interstate 4.

The route would take visitors driving down the Interstate 75/Florida's Turnpike corridor into Disney from State Road 429, the Western Beltway toll road being built through western Orange County...

Buyers flee farther for affordable homes

But rural or suburban homeowners may have to trade off more than they bargained for, experts say

Kelly Griffith | Sentinel Staff Writer

Posted October 12, 2005

LAKE WALES -- Once upon a time, communities such as Clermont, DeLand and Poinciana were considered perfect places to escape the big city while getting more house for the buck.

Now, thanks to skyrocketing house prices, buyers seeking tranquillity at an affordable price are having to head farther afield to towns such as Polk City and Mascotte.

I wouldn't have expected this. Not two weeks ago Hughes was wringing its hands because it didn't have enough space downtown.

From 11/7/05 Orlando Business Journal

More mixed-use headed downtown

Get ready for more construction cranes downtown -- and more mixed-use development.

Highwoods Properties plans to build a 175,000-square-foot office tower as part of its planned Capital Plaza III at the southeast corner of Rosalind Avenue and Pine Street, according to the latest report from Orlando's Downtown Development Board.

The proposed $100 million mixed-use development also would include 120 residential condos, a 130-room hotel and 12,000-15,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. In addition, Highwoods plans to build a parking garage next to three mixed-use buildings. The report doesn't include a start or completion date for that project.

Highwoods execs aren't talking, though. "We're still in the planning process," says Mike Beale, senior vice president of Highwoods in Orlando. "And we have made no formal submissions to the city."

Has anyone noticed that our little town is the only Florida city which is building an appreciable amount of office space downtown ?

Indeed, one of the few in the South, probably.

I thought they have a very tall Flariton builing and a Columbus tower that are purely office

Now they've got a good bit proposed. Meanwhile, Orlando's been building office, is building office, and has lots planned for the future. :)

Miami had 1.2M as of last week. Orlando had 880K a couple of months ago. But now we have less because Cornerstone is finished.

Let's see. CNL II and The Plaza would be what, around 700K ? Then Capital Plaza 175K, not to mention the Palm Beach Land Trust which could be well over 500K. Then throw in Dynetech, as well as portions of other mixed-use projects which are office space...and I bet we'll still be number one in the state.

But even if we were close to Miami, it would be remarkable, no ?

Absolutely, especially when you take into account office space per population. What is the current existing office space in each of these two downtowns, anyone know?

Orlando CBD had 10.002 million sq.ft. as of 2004, according to DDB.

Not sure about Miami, but I thought I read recently 12 million sq.ft.

That's what www.downtownorlando.com says ... 'downtown at a glance'.

You have to remember that Miami CBD has, I believe, the lowest percentage of office space of any major metro.
